Jennifer Allis Provost

Author Jennifer Allis Provost

Author of The Hawk and the Nightingale and the Poison Garden series

Jennifer Allis Provost writes books about faeries, orcs and elves. Zombies, too. She grew up in the wilds of Western Massachusetts and had read every book in the local library by age twelve. (It was a small library.) An early love of mythology and folklore led to her epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Parthalan, and her day job as a cubicle monkey helped shape her urban fantasy, Copper Girl. When she’s not writing about things that go bump in the night (and sometimes during the day) she’s working on her MFA in Creative Nonfiction.

Ophelia Wells Langley

Author of The Moon and the Hunt and The Borderlands Princess

Ophelia Wells Langley is a mother to two boys. A mild obsession with Celtic mythology, a strong taste for fantasy, and a penchant for escapism were the basis for her formative years as a writer.

Her goal is simple: create character-driven stories that are inclusive and diverse. She creates lush fantasy worlds that satiate our need for escape from reality.

When she’s not writing, plotting, or scheming about her characters, you can find her embracing her theatrical side for her toddlers as a tyrannosaurus rex.
